A couple from Nashville, Tennessee, was killed in a horrific car accident on Saturday as they were heading back to their home after attending a funeral.
The initial police report stated that the couple was returning from a funeral for their son; however, authorities released a correction late Saturday night confirming the funeral was not for their son but it was for a family member, according to Fox broadcast affiliate News Channel 5.
The single-vehicle crash took place around 6 pm on Cato Road at Ashland City Highway in Nashville, according to the news channel.
The victims were revealed to be 49-year-old Troy Jenkins and his 38-year-old wife Cameo Jenkins who had just left a church following the funeral.
According to the authorities, the husband was driving at the time of the incident. The man lost control of his 1968 Chevrolet Camaro due to excessive speed on Cato Road. The vintage car only had lap belts in it.
The investigators also found signs of braking, but the vehicle didn’t slow down in time and hit a rock wall on the right side of the road just before the intersection with Ashland City Highway.
The victims were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where doctors confirmed their death.
Following the incident, the road was closed from both sides and cleanup crews were deployed to remove the debris caused by the wreck.
